J. S. Onésimo Sandoval

J. S. Onésimo Sandoval is associate professor in the department of sociology and anthropology at Saint Louis University.  His primary research interests include spatial demography, urban sociology, social-environmental synthesis, spatial criminology, and Latino sociology. He is currently working on several research projects: the spatial hierarchy of cities, neighborhood diversity and residential segregation; Pan-Latino identity and neighborhoods, Latino demographic transitions, the demographic transitions of immigrants, and Latino quality of life. His research projects are unified by an underlying theoretical concern with differentiation, stratification, and the recognition of social, cultural, and symbolic capital, as well as by a methodological pluralism. The projects are designed to foster a dialogue for a new urban sociology that captures the diversity of social life, social suffering, racial harmony and discord, and the unique urban experience.
